Recent advances in the science of early childhood development provide us with useful tools to better understand and support young children. Learn how to establish a healthy attachment with your baby while you promote the development of foundational social and emotional skills. Transform mealtimes, bath times and even changing diapers into teachable moments that will make your child’s brain grow strong. You already have all that it takes to light up the brain of your baby in a unique way. Join us in this interactive program where you will have the opportunity to connect, practice and share with other caregivers in a welcoming and safe way.
